And one of the forays in Chicago was a trip to the Spice House in Old Towne. It was an accidental discovery, but a very yummy one. Walking in smelled like being inside my mom's pantry.

It had all sorts of spices lining the shelves, from ethnic Chicago blend rubs to vanilla beans that cost $5 apiece. It was pretty, and fun, and made my evening.

Beyond that, we managed to hit Chicago during an actual blizzard and nearly drove into a ditch driving back to Palatine. It was a fun trip. Any trip where you buy crystallized ginger and cacao nibs is a fun trip :)

P.S. [livejournal.com profile] rumblebrumble, you're welcome to try some of the ginger- I know we had a conversation about the difference between pickled sushi ginger and candied ginger, so now you can actually find out what I meant. I <3 candied ginger.
